(pronounced 'tone') High society; the elite; generally the wealthiest and those of rank, with royalty at the top; in today's terms, the 'in' crowd, such as Hollywood stars. To be "good ton" was paramount, and opened most any door in fashionable society. Occasionally, those without either fortune or pedigree could become a member of the 'ton,' if they were an Original (such as Beau Brummell--although he did,in fact, start out in society with an inheritance of 30,000 pounds--nothing to sneeze at)or could amuse or entertain the rich to a high degree.

The amount of energy it takes to convert 2000 lbs. of water at 32° F. to ice at 32° F. during a 24 hour period. Calculation: 2000 lbs. (H2O) x 144 Btu/lb. = 288,000 Btu's in 24 Hrs.

Freight rates for liner cargo generally are quoted on the basis of a certain rate per ton, depending on the nature of the commodity. This ton, however, may be a weight ton or a measurement ton. Short ton = 2000 lbs. Long ton = 2200 Lbs.
A cooling unit of measure. Each ton equals 12,000 Btuh. Heat pumps and air conditioners are generally sized in tons. Typical sizes for single family residences are between two and five tons. It is important to note that actual capacity is not constant and will change based on outdoor or indoor temperatures. The published capacity rating of air conditioners and heat pumps is based on performance at the ARI standard temperature levels of 95 F outside, 80 F inside. The number of tons a system has is the total BTU capacity of the system. The size of the area to be cooled will determine the correct size of the system in tons.

The word ton or tonne is derived from the Old English tunne, likely of Low Latin origin (as tunna), with the spelling 'tonne' introduced during the Middle English period subject to Old French influence. Originally meaning cask or barrel, it later came to specifically denote a cask with a capacity of 252 wine gallons, holding approximately 2100 pounds of water. Such a barrel (of any similar volume) is still called a tun in British English, but this usage is dying out.
